From my Philosophy of Science book: “I have paid particular attention to the challenge posed by Quinean epistemological holism, which takes the post-Kantian revolutions in geometry and mechanics (among other things) as grounds for a naturalized empiricism in which there is nothing left of the a priori at all; and to the challenge posed by Kuhn’s theory of scientific revolutions, which has led, in recent years, to a new style of historical and conceptual relativism based on the incommensurability or non-intertranslatability of succeeding revolutionary paradigms.”
